Plant & Wildlife Monitoring at The Fells

  • September 25, 2019
  • 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM
  • Long Pond Parking Lot, Winchester, MA

We welcome you to take a peep and/or help us gathering science field information relating to plants, birds, and insects at the Fells. In the end, it's likely that you'll love it so much that you'll want to join our group of citizen scientists.  

In the course of 3+ hours, we survey 6 sites (4 plant phenology sites + 2 arthropod monitoring sites). We also monitor bird activity at 2 ponds. We'll record information following nationally standardized phenology and biodiversity protocols (and fed to shared global platforms).  

Age: Adults (16+) & Seniors.

⚠️ Hiking pace between sites: Fast. We'll start with our Long Pond sites then get to our Bellevue sites. Between sites, we will hike relatively fast yet very quietly, on the lookout for any kind of signs. This is a great way opportunity to learn how to be alert and in tune with our environment, and to discover our urban woodland's biodiversity and cycles.

Details & Registration: This is an RSVP event. If you intend to come, we ask you kindly that you let us know, so that we can communicate with you about what to wear and what to bring, as well as to be able to inform you if there is any change plan due to weather and other reasons. Register here » Thanks!
